Today I'm sharing another of the projects we made in my classes last week. It uses another new stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue, called 'Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts'. It has 5 very sweet line images perfect for colouring and 3 lovely friendship sentiments. In case you have passed it by, you can see it below and purchase it from my online store.
The flower cart screams Paris to me. I hope I get to see something like this on my trip to France later in the year. I got out my Stampin' Blends to colour it, plus I also used the Lemon Lime Twist water colour pencil from the 'Lots of Happy' Card Kit. I enjoy mixing different colouring mediums to get the look you want.
I started with a piece of Soft Sky card stock and embossed it with my favourite Quilt Top embossing folder. I added a narrow mat of Whisper White before adhering the panel to my Berry Burst card base. The square Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to create the rectangle that I stamped the cart image on to. After colouring, I added a mat of Berry Burst and popped it up onto the card front. The greeting was stamped in black and die cut with the label from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies. I cut it a second time to reduce the length and placed it on a narrow strip of Berry Card stock.
I used Pool Party and Smoky Slate for the cart; Old Olive for the leaves and Lemon Lime Twist behind the flowers and for the grass. The flowers are Pink Pirouette with a touch of Rich Razzleberry blended in and then finished with a tiny rhinestone in the centre. I used a very pale grey Copic marker to create a shadow around the image to add depth.
For the inside, I stamped the smaller potting bench image at the base of the writing panel and used the same colours as previously. The pots were coloured with Pumpkin Pie to give a terracotta look. The spotted Berry Burst washi creates a base for the grass. The same image was also stamped on the envelope flap for a lovely coordinated look.
